The Professional Sing Sandwich panel starts as a 4 ft x 8 ft Sing “sandwiched” panel. Professional Sing Sandwich panels are guaranteed not to warp for 50 years.
If you are an architect, general contractor or home owner and expect a non-warp guarantee from the door manufacturers (especially the very large and expensive doors) you would be very hard-pressed to come to an adequate warranty arrangement with either a door manufacturer or millwork because large doors and doors made of exotic woods are prone to fail; that is, unless the door is made with Professional Sing Sandwich inside. This is how we help to make the best doors in the world that can be guaranteed not to warp for 50 years.
Professional Sing Sandwich panels do not have a solid wood edge. For embedded solid wood edging, see: Professional Sing Panel. Just like it’s name Sandwich means professional patented Sing Core is “sandwiched” between two skins. This creates the best non-warp, lightweight, high strength panel material for superior construction. Standard Sing Sandwich continues to break all records for flatness but it will move if the skin is made of porous materials (non metal or plastic). In the event one side is exposed to excessive moisture or temperature then it could cause warping if the panel is very thin. If you have high expectations for non warping (which most of the high end large doors have problems with) Professional Sing Sandwich is the only insulated sandwich panel that warps less than any known core material. All Sing customers are happy with what we deliver when using the Professional Sing Sandwich panel to build their non warping doors, which is changing the previously known idea that all the large doors in North America warp due to the change of the seasons. The secret inside the best non-warping doors is the Professional Sing Core which keeps the Professional Sing Sandwich panel flat from our factory to its destination and stay flat for 50 years with structural integrity guaranteed.
A Professional Sing Sandwich panel consists of a substrate of 1 inch patented Sing Core® torsion box reinforced insulated substrate with special patent pending Sing stiffeners sandwiched between two ¼ inch sheets of plywood, resulting in the most Eco-friendly lightweight and high-strength (660 PSI, stronger than steel pound-for-pound) non-warp material. The Professional Sing Sandwich panel is the basis of many applications spanning a multitude of industries and is available to the public via special order from Lowe’s Home Improvement Pro Desk.
Professional Sing Sandwich panels have no solid wood edge. For embedded solid wood edging, see: Professional Sing Panel.
